Finally, a designer frame shop that knows the meaning of the word “designer.” Wares blend form and function, from cunning little rimless specs to out-and-out statement shades by the likes of Oliver Peoples, OGI, and Armani in a variety of colors. The personable staff will walk you through the pros and cons of current trends until you feel comfortable finding the right fit for your face.
